  1. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    If the finish was a bit longer, that would be a great great blend. He still likes it in his own way.
    • Nose
      The nose is very fruity and despite the 40% there are some flavors over. He is really round and coherent. Sweet, fruity, firsch.
    • Taste
      In the taste then again very fruity, with a slightly bitter note. Despite the 40%, the alcohol is very clear.
      The second sip then already significantly less alcohol. But the bitterness gets a bit stronger and oak comes through.
    • Finish
      The finish eats quite short but with a hefty portion of apple.

  2. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a pleasant and pleasing nose, taste and finish suffer something from the grain and youth
    • Nose
      Mild, fresh, apricot, vanilla, green apple, despite 40% you can feel the alcohol, now slight grainy notes, honey, increasingly sweet and pleasing, caramel and citrus notes, sweet orange with some resinity
    • Taste
      sweet and very creamy, initially mild afterwards pepper with honey, slightly less vanilla, apple, orange, bitter berries
    • Finish
      Bitterness, apple, here the proportion of grains is more noticeable and also the youth, quite short
